One of my all-time favorite reads, great characters and dialogue!

It is truly a perfect book.

True Grit was filmed on location in Ouray County. One building in Ridgeway was a film set construct, and is still in use. Lots of Colorado connection.

Keep in mind, though, that the Colorado locations were not really very realistic. The remake, shot in New Mexico and Texas as I recall, was more realistic. The story takes place in the low mountains of western Arkansas and eastern Oklahoma.
